Ovopur: The Art Of The Water Filter

I’ve been testing an Ovopur water filter from Aquaovo, a company based in Montreal. This filter is certainly the most attractive I’ve come across. My eye is often drawn to its porcelain ovoid shape sitting in my ktichen. I’ve come to think of it as a piece of art that also happens to filter water.The Ovopur operates as a drip filter — you pour water in the upper porcelain chamber, and it drips down through a filter into the lower chamber.

I enjoy drawing water from this object using the sturdy handle. The main water reservoir holds about 3 gallons (11 liters) – the water level is indicated by magnetic gauge on the side.

The filtration quality it is quite good — the filter incorporates KDF55, activated carbon, microporous bioceramics and quartz crystal.

The Ovopur is also priced like a piece of art, they go for around $850 and replacement filters cost about $160. Aquaovo recommends changing filter cartridges every 4 months to prevent bacteria build up and pollutants overload of the filtration media.

See the Aquaovo for more details.

    We love this product! The design is phenomenal, the quality of function is good, but the customer service from AquaOvo leaves much to be desired. I think the company is going through growing pains, because we ordered our filter in April, were told it would be shipped in July due to back orders, but didn’t receive it until mid September. Each phone call from July to September (we called three times) to check on our status, we were told: it will ship in two weeks… 7 weeks later, it was finally shipped. The directions for assembly are a rough translation from Quebecois French, so they were not terribly helpful, and the magnetic gauge was broken upon arrival. We haven’t yet received our replacement gauge a month later. Also, if the water level dips below the filter for too long, and the filter dries at all, you have to soak it for several hours to regain your filtering speed again, which effectively reduces the functional volume of your reservoir, as you can’t let it drop down fully.

    All in all, a gorgeous and well functioning product, we love it and our clean water tastes fantastic.

    Here’s our grade: Product: A; Customer Service: C-.
